If you recognize the name, it’s probably due to the extremely long Rothschild lineage, which can be traced back to at least the 1500s.
The family came into ridiculous money after establishing a banking business nearly 400 years ago. The Rothschilds continued in the line of business, with nearly every family member being involved in the world of finance, and Lord Jacob is no different. Today, the 80-year-old is an investment banker worth somewhere north of $5,000,000,000. Yup that’s a 5 with nine zeros.
Lord Jacob Rothschild Net Worth is larger than some countries GDP…
It’s hard to put Jacob’s net worth into perspective, but we’re going to try. With 5 billion dollars you can buy more than a thousand private jets, or about a billion cupcakes. Despite having a net worth larger than the GDP of Montenegro, Jacob isn’t even the richest Rothschild. In fact, his net worth is less than 1% of the total Rothschild nestegg. This virtually means that Jacob, or any other member of the Rothschild family, never has to worry about running out of money. At this point no Rothschild (including the unborn) will need to work to continue earning money.
Jacob started working with his family when he was still in school, but he didn’t hold any position of power until he was 30 years old. At 30, Jacob joined the family bank (N M Rothschild & Sons), where he worked for more than 15 years. He left the position in 1980, and took independent control of Rothschild Investment Trust (now RIT Capital Partners PLC).
Although he no longer focuses on the “day to day” of the company, Jacob is still on as Chairman of the trust. He is also the Chairman of J Rothschild Capital Management, which is a subsidiary of the RIT.
Aside from holding several high ranking positions in Rothschild affiliated institutions, Jacob is also a Founding Partner of Xander Real Estate, and a council member for the Duchy of Cornwall for the Prince of Wales. Jacob is continuing to keep himself busy, although he could have retired the same day that he was born.
Conspiracy surrounding the Rothschild dynasty
A lot of people believe that the family has the power to overthrow empires and break up nations, virtually claiming that they pretty much “control the world.” There is no concrete way of verifying any these claims, but the family does have enough money to purchase literally anything, so who knows.
That said, the Rothschilds like to live a quiet, almost mysterious lifestyle. Aside from the newlywed James, the Rothschild family name is seldomly featured in the tabloids, despite their prominence. Jacob is no different, he manages to live his life outside of media attention, keeping his spending private.
What we do know, is that Lord Jacob really does live like a lord, in a traditional sense. Currently, the billionaire resides in a stunning feat of architecture, dubbed the Flint House, Built on the property of the historic Waddesdon Manor, the Flint House remains hidden from onlookers by more than 5,000 acres of landscape.
Aside from that, there is not much being reported on the lifestyle of any member of the Rothschild family, so we can only imagine the extravagance that goes on behind closed doors. That said, if you want to get a taste of Rothschild luxury, you can visit the 130 year old Waddesdon Manor, which as of late 1900’s has been open to the public.
